DNR Show Cruise

2014 DNR Show Cruise

Caribbean Princess

Welcome to the 2nd DNR Show Cruise!

Join your pals Derek and Romaine for hijinks on the high seas! The first DNR Show Cruise was so successful; they decided to do it again! The second DNR Show Cruise will include a vibrant mix of men and women from all walks of life with an amazing blend of relaxation and fun like you’ve never experienced! It is a week that you will definitely never forget.

Join Derek and Romaine aboard the gorgeous Caribbean Princess for a grand Caribbean tour. We sail from Houston, TX on March 15, 2014 – March 22, 2014. Our ports of call will include Cozumel, Roatan and Belize City. Three days at sea will allow extra time to spend time with Derek & Romaine on board, and enjoy the ship!

Derek and Romaine personally chose this sailing for their second DNR Show cruise. This itinerary is reasonably priced to accommodate most travel budgets. While not the largest ship in the Princess fleet, the Caribbean Princess is one of the most feature laden. And we will all be in the mood for a little Caribbean warmth by the time March rolls around!

This is not a fully chartered ship like an RSVP or Atlantis cruise. But we are a group with our own scheduled private group activities including cocktail parties, Derek’s disco nights, Romaine’s karaoke, and more. All fans and friends of Derek and Romaine are encouraged to join us for a great week of fun. Those who book early will also have the option of joining Derek and Romaine at select meals. DNR Show excursions will be planned which will be less expensive than similar excursions offered by the cruise line. And waaaay more fun!

This will be a unique travel experience for fans of the DNR Show. Our special events will offer the chance to bond with fellow fans and with Derek and Romaine themselves!

Join us!

The beautiful Caribbean Princess will visit the Island of Cozumel, Mexico. Mayan myth claims that Cozumel was home to the gods. Truly Cozumel is a place fit for the gods, with its dazzling white-sand beaches, ruined Mayan temples, exotic jungle wildlife, and crystalline waters teeming with tropical fish. Just offshore lay Palancar Reef, considered one of the most spectacular coral formations in all the Caribbean. Of course, the gods weren’t the only individuals attracted to this terrestrial paradise: during its long and colorful history, Cozumel has been home to pirates, buccaneers, and freebooters, including Sir Henry Morgan and Jean Lafitte. Today’s traveler will discover the same ravishing beauty and relaxation that entertained gods and pirates alike.

The next stop is the Island of Roatan, Honduras. Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras, is noted for its pristine coral reefs, beautiful beaches, lush tropical foliage, and friendly people. Christopher Columbus discovered the islands in 1502 while on his fourth voyage and over the years it has been controlled by the British and Spanish, as well as pirates and traders. The first permanent population of Roatan originated from the Cayman Islands, arriving in the 1830s shortly after the end of slavery in British colonies. Today, the population is about 30,000. The main town and capital of the municipality is Coxen Hole. Roatan is a long, narrow island measuring 37 miles in length, located about 30 miles from the northern Honduran mainland. The island has a mountainous backbone that provides for some excellent hiking opportunities, panoramas and lush scenery. Surrounded by warm Caribbean waters, this hilly island (frequented by diving enthusiasts) is picturesque, unspoiled and can take claim to being one of the region’s fastest developing destinations.

Finally, the Caribbean Princess will visit Belize City, Belize. Located at the base of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize offers travelers a wealth of attractions. The country’s dense rain forest is dotted with Mayan ruins. The forest is also home to a wide range of tropical wildlife, ranging from jaguars and ocelots to keel-boated macaws and howler monkeys. Offshore, the world’s second largest barrier reef offers some of the finest diving in the world. And Belize’s easygoing ways, a legacy of its past as a British colony, feels far more akin to a small Caribbean island than a Central American republic.

Note: Belize City is a tender port – passengers transfer to shore via local tender.

Caribbean Princess®

Escape completely® on Caribbean Princess, one of the stars of the destination that bears her name. At her launch in 2004, this incredible ship introduced Movies Under the Stars® – a giant poolside movie theater featuring first run movies, concerts and sporting events. Here you can relax in a cushioned lounger with freshly-popped, complimentary popcorn under the night sky. Onboard, passengers can also enjoy a variety of street performing acts in the Italian-inspired Piazza, indulge in a soothing massage from an outdoor cabana at The Sanctuary®, or savor a premium steak cooked to order in the Crown Grill.

Recommended Hotels:

4. Cabin Assignments: At the time of your deposit the best located cabin available will be assigned to you. From time to time you may not get a cabin number immediately. This means that the cruise line has guaranteed your rate but temporarily cannot assign a cabin number. You are guaranteed to get the cabin category that you have selected but you may have to wait a while for it to be assigned.

5. Cashless Society: When checking at the pier you will need to leave a credit card imprint. Anything you purchase on the ship will be charged to your cabin account. Cash is not accepted anywhere except the casino. Should you not have a credit card, you will need to leave cash deposit from which you may draw.

6. Ship Board Activities: The Caribbean Princess will host a cocktail party for our guests (once minimum group requirements are met). Other private events are also planned for the week. Full details of our daily itinerary will be made available to you prior to sailing.

7. Dining: We have confirmed a block of tables together at 8:15PM each evening in the traditional Palm Dining Room. There are two formal nights on this sailing. Dining the rest of the evenings is casual meaning slacks and shirt or polo type shirt. Breakfasts, lunches and all meals in the Horizon Court buffet are always casual (open from 5am–11pm). You may request other dining times if you wish but you will not be with the rest of the group. We find it a great bonding experience if the entire group dines together.

8. Shore Excursions: The ship will offer many excursions to purchase. We however, will offer at least two or three of our own. Our trips are usually lower priced and include more than what the ship will offer. Information regarding our excursions will be posted and sent to you approximately 60 days prior to sailing.

9. Gratuities: A daily charge of $11.50 per person ($12 per person in mini-suites & suites) will be added to your cabin account to serve as tips to porters, waiters, cabins stewards, and pool boys.

10. Getting to the Ship: You should fly into Houston (Hobby or Bush Intercontinental) airport and try to arrive before 11:00am. Princess Cruises does offer transfers to/from the cruise port for $24.00 per person/each way. Please let us know if you would like to purchase transfers at the time of your booking.

11. Returning from the Ship: Please do not book any flights from Houston (Hobby or Bush Intercontinental) before 12:00pm on Saturday, March 22, 2014.
